Much obliged Vince,thank you for the quick advice.I know very little about such electrical things but have learned so much since joining the fantastic Router Forum. James@jj77746 - James, not sure what your requirements are, but I've got a 1HP Delta dust collector - runs on 110 (here in Canada). I picked up this set of 3 indoor wireless remote plugs. Came with a remote with three on/off buttons. I plugged one into an outlet and plugged the DC into it. Use the remote to turn the DC on and off from anywhere in the room. I used another one for my overhead dust cleaner. Used the third one for my shop vac. Cost was $20 US and picked it up at Harbor Freight - I know, I know!!! but they work great.
Here's the link.
Here's a picture from their website - not a great picture, sorry
Thank you Stick,This is gonna be so helpful for me My pain management doctor told me years ago that my condition would get worse as I got older & he sure was right so this is just what I need.Thanks again,really appreciated.James
I bought the Kemo master/slave switch from jaycar for my dust collection. Works well.James, the simple reliable method that I use is a "master/slave switch" The machine plugs into one outlet and the current is sensed which powers the second outlet. In other words, when the machine is switched on, the dust collector also comes on. I built a couple of them using the module shown which I bought from Germany, but I have since seen them at Jcar. .
